Excellent Movie!!!!!
19 February 2005 | by (India) – See all my reviews

I have seen this film many times and every time i am watching i am loving it more and more.This film can be considered as one of the best of Indian films. Mohanlal's jayakrishnan is superb. In this film he play's the role of a villager who shows dual personality. This film was the first malayalam film which focused on "split personality" of the hero and later many films were released with the same theme(Usthaad, Runway etc)but did not come upto the mark. The film was made from padmarajan's(Director) novel "udakappola" with slight differences. If you read this book and then watch it you can see the perfection of the picturisation.The film has no boring or low standard comedy scenes which is one of the plus points. don't miss this excellent movie......
